80 Year Old Cyclist Dies After Hit By Car

The death of a pensioner knocked off his bike was today (Tuesday August 2nd) at the centre of a police probe.

The 80-year-old man suffered fatal injuries after being struck by a blue people carrier outside a busy supermarket.

The elderly man, who has not been named by police, was raced to hospital, where despite medics best efforts he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

The driver of the car, a Chrysler Grand Voyager, was uninjured and has been interviewed about the incident by police.

Collision investigators cordoned off Bedford Road in Kempston, Bedfordshire to probe the collision which took place yesterday at 12.30pm.

Sergeant Colin Bonner said: "Sadly the gentleman on the bike later died from his injuries.
"We are therefore investigating the circumstances that led up to the collision and would like to speak to anyone who was in the area and may have seen it occur."
